A New Anthology for the readers and an opportunity for the authors

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Greetings Authors and Listeners,
For those of you who don’t know us at Podioracket it is time you checked us out and for those of you who have taken advantage of the free marketing we offer authors as always thanks for thinking of us. We have some changes happening in season 5 you should all be aware of so please have a listen to the new episode.
We announced today in the new short show episode that Podioracket will be putting out a new anthology later this year. You can find the guidelines here next to the cover for Glimpses
The idea is to get you, the author, to submit a written short story in the world from your podiobooks novel. This can be a short before, after, or spin off from a loved or hated character as long as it is in the world you have created and already released. This time we are sticking with fantasy fiction which does include horror. We want this to be new content that your readers have not seen before.
Once your short is accepted you will be notified and you will have 2 months to do the audio. Glimpses will be released in audio on and in ebook form. The new episode of Podioracket Ep-41 gives you a verbal overview of the project and the guidelines are live on the submissions page.
Submissions deadline is April 4th.
Listeners and Readers you are going to get a chance to see if these authors are for you without committing yourself to a novel. Like their worls you can subscribe to the novel set in the worlds they have created.
Can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
Rhonda R Carpenter
